Local Guidelines

General

In addition to safety guidelines, preventative health measures such as frequent hand washing and social distancing are encouraged to combat further outbreaks. The National Capital Region, including Metro Manila, is currently under Modified Enhanced Community Quarantine (MECQ). A curfew is in place from 8 pm to 4 am. Different regions may impose their own curfew hours, limiting non-essential movement, or may adopt a community quarantine if the area is of high risk. A 'quarantine pass' may be required for movements outside the residence. We recommend keeping up-to-date with official guidelines throughout your trip.
